The exquisitely-curated line-up includes the likes of Girl Talk, The XX, M83, Joanna Newsom, Public Enemy, Youth Lagoon, Grimes, War On Drugs, and more than a dozen other acts.

VIP includes preferred viewing area next to main stage, tented lounge with access to full liquor bar, private restroom facilities (yay!) and access to special VIP food concessions. Here's how to win 'em:
